Storytellers From The Heart and Soul
Photographer & Predecessor
A photographer at heart since the age of fourteen, Loreen started out working for her father Sam Sarkis as just an assistant. Throughout the years, she had the chance to learn from both sides of the lens from one of her most influential mentors about what photography was all about. Lessons in lighting, composition, and the professional business side were trades that Loreen was immersed with in both a collegiate setting and a family setting. Under Sam’s guidance, she grew up to become his second shooter and since then has been shooting weddings throughout the United States and has become a immense part of her fathers brand, Sam Sarkis Photography.
Loreen decided to expand the family’s notable Michigan based brand across the country to launch their international brand, Sarkis Studios in Los Angeles. "I wanted to expand ourselves and reach for a higher tier of performance. We are two talented partners that have such a unique story. I felt that the world needed to see it through our point of view.”
Loreen is a renowned photographer and is one of the most up and coming in the West Coast. Her eye for beauty, light, and composition is what sets her apart from her peers. Most of her work focuses on weddings and fashion.
